Fridge /frɪdʒ/

noun [C]

(1) a piece of kitchen equipment that uses electricity to preserve food at a cold temperature.

This fridge is a vitrine used to both preserve and display objects once familiar and in everyday use.

Each object has its own distinct voice. The clattering of heavy keys typing correspondence which will be received days later, will be replaced by the immediacy of email. Whirring tapes playing carefully choreographed recordings will evolve into personal playlists and the click of the shutter, taking portraits composed by another, with the selfie unimagined. The load of these mechanical devices replaced by the discreet digital smartphone and the iconic sounds of creation silenced.

Photographed and printed at almost life size (600mm x 900mm). Shown with accompanying sound piece.
